Wrong Laptop for gaming?


Sep 10, 2012
Hello again forums. First off let me say that my tech knowledge stops with the Athlon XP CPU's and DDR RAM. So, 5-6 years? I bought a Toshiba Satellite 2nd Gen I3 and I think I messed up. I don't know what I want but I know what I want it for, Skyrim & World of Warcraft and then the normal functions, Facebook, Youtube, Twitch TV & Email. My budget is $450 ($500 after taxes and shipping).

Two part question
1. Should I try to return this and get an AMD A6?

2. Could I build a more powerful desktop for the same budget ($450)?

I am open to criticism, questions and answers. This computer doesn't have to be a laptop.

If it doesn't have to be a laptop then you would get a much much better desktop computer than you would a laptop for $500.
